Currently, the ecobee Smart Thermostat is down to $199, that's going to save you $50 on its regular price. Making this a really great deal, and a great stocking stuff for anyone on your list looking to make their home smarter.
The ecobee Smart Thermostat may not have the best name, but it does a great job at helping you to conserve energy and thus saving money. In the first year, ecobee estimates that you'll save around 23% on your heating and cooling costs. So it can pay for itself in less than a years' time. That is pretty incredible when you think about it.
It also comes with the room sensor, which is a feature that really sets ecobee apart. The room sensor can be placed elsewhere in your home – maybe in a bedroom in the opposite end of the home. It works with the ecobee Smart Thermostat, so it knows whether or not the entire home is at the temperature it should be. If you have a room that is typically much colder (or hotter) than the rest of the house, then this is a great way to fix that.
ecobee Smart Thermostat also is compatible with Amazon Alexa. In fact, Alexa is built-in. So it's like having an Echo on your wall. Meaning that you can ask your thermostat to play music on your other smart speakers in your home. Which is pretty fun.
The design of the ecobee Smart Thermostat is also really nice. It turns the screen off, so it just looks like a black squircle on your wall.
